Born-Again pastors in Uganda have been advised not to spritualise child abuse cases, but to always report them to Police and concerned authorities.
 
This was revealed by Bishop Charles Bagonza, the overseer of the Pentecostal Churches of Uganda. Bagonza said there are some pastors who sometimes tend to hold on to cases of child abuse as spiritual cases in churches.
 
“Any issue or case of child abuse or any form of violation should not be handled in church, but should be reported to the relevant authorities,” he said.
 
 
Bagonza was on Saturday addressing the faithful at Mityana Pentecostal Church in Busimbi, Mityana municipality, at an event to mark the closure of the four-month prayer campaign dubbed ‘The DOVE 120’ (Days of Victory Ever).
 
Bishop Bagonza emphasised the need for praying for the communities and the nation at large and commended the Mityana Pentecostal Church for
the campaign.
 
During the closing ceremony, six couples took their marriage vows and held a reception in the church compound.
 
Pastor David Lubayinda, the senior pastor at the Mityana Pentecostal Church said that the main objective of the prayer campaign is to ensure that the living conditions of the people of Mityana improve.
